Messaging platform WhatsApp will no longer be available on more than 50 types of phones in a few weeks.

From 1 November WhatsApp will no longer be supported on 53 models of phones.

It will not work on Android phones running OS 4.0.4 and older, and for iPhones it requires iOS 10 or newer.

Users of Android and Apple devices have been warned to upgrade their devices or update their software.

If upgrading to a new device existing accounts will be re-enabled when entering the same phone number associated with it.

Although it’s not possible to transfer chat history between platforms, for example from Android to iPhone, people can still keep their chat history.

This can be done by exporting chat history as an email attachment before November.

People can find out what operating system their phone uses by checking it in the settings function.

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook regularly updates which systems it supports on its help centre.

The platform will no longer work on these phones after 1 November:


  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6S plus
